Desktop virtualization brings with it some impressive advantages for businesses. With every user desktop running from a centralized server, you can improve security, take control of permissions, and improve system portability.
Citrix offers complete solutions for desktop and application virtualization, with some useful features. Specifically, Citrix’s proprietary HDX protocol is a high-speed transfer method designed to eliminate lag when connecting to virtual desktops.
In addition, Citrix offers wide support for different platforms, including Mac OS X and a Java-based browser client.
Of course, these additional features come with a cost. While Citrix solutions offer quality, it’s worth comparing functionality against your requirements to avoid paying for things you don’t really need.
